Sunglasses for Kite surfing

In addition to prolonged exposure to the sun, this extreme water sport also exposes kite surfers to the wind so they need specific sunglasses for kite surfing. The sun's harmful ultraviolet rays create dangerous conditions for a kite surfer's eyes, while the wind dries out their eyes! A very common eye problem caused by prolonged and repeated exposure to the sun and wind is sunburned eyes! Yes, the eyes can suffer from sunburn. Repeated sunburn can lead to eye cancer and other eye diseases like pterygium and cataracts. Dry eyes can lead to macular degeneration.

Functional Kite Surfing Sunglasses
Kite surfers need functional sunglasses with a wrap-around frame to get the maximum protection for their eyes. A wrap-around frame provides coverage from temple-to-temple including peripheral vision. The frame should be ventilated to help avoid fogging. The lenses MUST be 100% UVA and UVB resistant to protect the eyes from UV rays and they MUST be polarized to cut the glare so to provide the best view. An integrated strap is another important feature to look for when shopping for sunglasses for kite surfing.

The Best Kite Surfing Sunglasses
The Best Sunglasses for kite surfing should have a one-handed adjustable strap. With strong winds coming directly at the kite surfer's face, the sunglasses must stay on. They may be out in the water longer so the surfing sunglasses must be comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The polarization feature decreases the strain on the eyes.

The Best kite surfing sunglasses are SeaSpecs Jet Specs for bright, sunny conditions or Sunset Specs, for early morning or late afternoon.

Prescription Sunglasses for Kite Surfing
